about

Red Usurper Saint John, New Brunswick

Red Usurper combines many disparate influences into a furious sound that defies rigid classification. Blending elements of sludge, doom and groove, they craft a unique style that is both crushingly heavy and delicately nuanced. They play loudly and passionately using themes of destruction, ruin and redemption to examine the darkness that exists within us and beyond. ... more

Track Name: Swamp
Take you by the river, lay you down in the long grass
I’ll take a souvenir I promised everything.
Like a sick religion hide you down in the murky deep.
I’ll take a piece of you. Watch me snip your wings.

(Your wings)

As your life is leaving, watch the wind blow the ancient pines.
I’ll stay until your gone and make sure you’re on your way
What a haunting vision taking life to the other side
Cold chill in my eyes here to seal your fate

(Your Fate)


See the cross in the moonlight dancing with the stars
The knife glimmers in the light.
Blood red flowing downward.
If you want you can come with me
A dream or fantasy
You won’t see the light of day
You won’t escape my mystic hold.
Track Name: Chains
You waste away
Your darkest hour
All is gone – Lost your way
Your quest for peace inside your mind
The battles lost – You won’t be the same

You left the world
A silent game
Your soul destroyed – You fought for days
You wished upon – a blackened sky
That’s the world - that’s your way

You break your chains
You are tired of all the pain
You break your chains
You won’t bow to this again

The witches fire – You lit it high
The drums rang out sealing your fate
You drew your sword – Your fathers blade
The blood you spilled keeps to safe.

You break your chains
Your tired of all the pain
You break your chains
You won’t bow to this again

SOLO:

Your flame falls
And chains break
You are tired of all the pain
You break your chains
You won’t bow to this again – You won’t bow
Track Name: Blackened on the Second Day
This story has a tragic end,
It’s one of eternal loss,
A blackness that will never end.
The blink of an eye and now they’re gone!

See it in the fallacy – A ticking bomb that’s fucking gone off.
Leveling humanity – The lies were told the truth was lost

____________> Oh __________> Oh. Blackened on the second day.

Extinction event trajectory – Coming at us from the dark.
Astronomic Artillery – A piece of rock to kill us all.
Wave of fire burned the seas – Hot enough to crack the sky.
Spawning mantle into space – Throwing the globe into the dark.

____________> Oh __________> Oh. Blackened on the second day.


Doom – The end is at hand. Through the fires we burn.
We wade though the ash. Never to return.

SOLO:

We are crawling through the black of night.
Burnt and bleeding but still alive!
There is nothing left to remind us of what was.
It’ll take – It takes.
It takes us away.
And turns us to dust.

Blackened on the second day!
Track Name: Infected
The time has come Motherfuckers
Down in the apocalypse.
Nothing left but sinners
Deadly metamorphosis
Dead have come back to life.
Killing everyone that you know.
Don’t wait to capitulate – As you calculate your worth.

Do or die it’s now or never.
The plague of hell has taken everything.
Retribution for our failures.
Millions of lives come to an end.
Sacrificed everyone in sight.
Taking the meat right to the bone.
Eat your heart while you’re still alive.
Watch your bloody death unfold.

See the ending as it tears your mind.
Evacuate and leave your life behind.
See the ending as it tears your mind
Evacuate and leave your world behind

Time again Motherfuckers
Down in the apocalypse
Nothing left but killers
Deadly metamorphosis
Dead have come back to life
Killing everyone that they know.
Don’t wait to capitulate – As you calculate your worth.

See the ending as it tears your mind.
Evacuate and leave your life behind.
See the ending as it tears your mind
Evacuate and leave your world behind
Track Name: Manifesto
End of days, in the rut
Where the sorrow wallows
Take your time, feel the pain
Only anger follows
Which one goes first?
Push the button now!
Stripped down - Insane
Is this the best we are?

Blasphemy your chosen path
Stripping down your mind
Slay the meek - Turn the cheek
Bloody path defined
Which one does first?
Pull the trigger now
Chained up you'll see
The burning pit of fire

To war ----- The setting sun to kill the one
Letting go of reigns
Line them up - Feel the rush
No more life remains

MANIFESTO!

End of days, in the rut
Where the sorrow wallows
Take your time - feel the pain
As the ravens call you home.
Track Name: Supernovae
The sphere of time awakens
Dark clouds spin round – Heat rising
Atoms find their way to center
Ceremonial blast of fusion

A billion years of forming
Relentless power unstopping
The light it makes it blinding
Gravitational forces tearing

The sphere of time is burning
Our flaming sun – Our center
A violent force of nature
Giving us our life forever

The rise and fall of fusion
When the fuel is atoms imploding
Internal forces take over
From this they won’t recover

Helios O-Invictus Atlantium-----------Helios
Helios O-Invictus Podetium-----------Helios
Tetanus – Eluvium – Ivictium--------------Helios
Avialan Invictus Novae
Bless our home

The sphere of time is ending
Our flaming sun is dying.
